Evolution Discussion

Because I am taking biology (I've already taken physics and chemistry) and the section I am doing now is all about Darwin's theory of evolution, I have decided to have a discussion of evolution on my blog, in light of the recent Intelligent Design controversies. From 2nd grade to 8th grade, I went to a Baptist-run but non-denominational school, so our science books were unsupportive of evolution. But, now I am being officially taught about it for the first time.

Anyway, here is how I understand evolution-

  • There is genetic diversity.
  • Animals with certain genes do better in a certain environment than others do.
  • Those animals that have the better suited genes survive (survival of the fittest.)
  • When one species has multiple environments, it begins change in multiple, separate directions.
  • Eventually, the different sections of the original species change so much that they can no longer interbreed, and are no longer a single species with each other.
While I believe that evolution is at least a possibility, I recognize that atheistic evolution is unreasonable. Something cannot come out of nothing unless someone puts it there.

Also, a fellow member of the Western Alliance (Bill Lama of palosverdesblog) has been posting on certain claims of evolution.

So, is there anyone willing to take it from here?
